My difficult(to say the least) mare is in foal 52 days. Yea! I have discovered that we have on our property tent worms aka Gypsi moths (you know the kind that are in those white sticky sacks). I have heard that these have caused abortions in mares in Kentucky. I live in Michigan and apparently we have some. My husband destroyed what he could reach.Some are so high we can't get to them. How at risk are we and is there anything I can do to safeguard her? Is my risk now, or in the spring? Does anyone have experience with them?

Jennifer, I believe the problem was related to tent caterpillars and choke cherries. Now I don't know for certain, but I believe you should be fine if you don't have choke cherry trees which I doubt you do in Michigan.

We found the tent worms in cherry trees. Not sure if they are Choke cherries or not, but definantly cherry trees. I also heard that they will spread to other trees once they hatch, I have been scouting the pastures and haven't seen an infestation anywhere (we burned what we found) but I keep looking.
